On March 5th 2015, MARTiAL YOU started a new Olympic Taekwondo program for youth and adults in the Brewer community. Classes are held Thursday evenings at 34 Abbot Street in Brewer, home of Team Irish MMA Fitness Academy and Gracie Barra BJJ. One of our main goals is to create and grow lasting collaborations with other martial arts organizations in Maine to widen our mission's impact and increase opportunities for those who can benefit from martial arts. We believe this program will do just that!
Olympic Style Taekwondo Basics / WTF (World Taekwondo Federation) Style
TAEKWONDO - Korea: "The way of the hand and foot" - a modern martial art from Korea that is characterised by its fast, high and spinning kicks. It combines combat techniques, self-defense, sport, exercise, and in some cases meditation and philosophy. In 1989, Taekwondo was the world's most popular martial art in terms of number of practitioners. Gyeorugi, a type of sparring, has been an Olympic event since 2000.
